Mid-Term Evaluation of the Citizen's Rights Project (Ref. ENI/2015/038-279)
Objectives of the evaluation
Systematic and timely evaluation of its programmes and activities is an established priority of the European Commission. The focus of evaluations is on the assessment of achievements, the quality and
the results of Interventions in the context of an evolving cooperation policy with an increasing emphasis on result-oriented approaches and the contribution towards the implementation of the SDGs.
From this perspective, evaluations should look for evidence of why, whether or how these results are linked to the EU intervention and seek to identify the factors driving or hindering progress.
Evaluations should provide an understanding of the cause and effect links among: inputs and activities, and outputs, outcomes and impacts. Evaluations should serve accountability, decision making, learning and management purposes.
The main objectives of this evaluation are to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the interested stakeholders with:
? an overall independent assessment of the past performance of the Citizen Rights’ Project, paying particular attention to its intermediate results measured against its expected objectives; and the
reasons underpinning such results;
? key lessons learned, conclusions and related recommendations in order to improve current and future Interventions.
In particular, this evaluation will serve to understand the performance of the Intervention, its enabling factors and those hampering a proper delivery of results to inform the planning of the future EU
interventions and Interventions in the same sector
The main users of this evaluation will be the EU Delegation to Egypt, the NCHR, the NCW and CSOs
